Lively playing like shit again. Doesn't help when your coach calls you out after last game.

I really, really hope Kidd gets fired. No matter how unlikely...I will hope.

Grant Williams is worse than Jason Richardson was. That's saying something.

Kidd pretending to coach by calling these TOs.

Down 8 with 38 seconds and he he?s to give the speech

?im not giving you any play calls but Don?t suck or I?ll throw you under the bus in the presser?

He'll call a TO when the game doesn't matter but won't call one when teams go on 11-0 runs. He is the worst coach in the NBA by a mile.

These games when Luka doesn?t play is seriously some of the most boring games to watch. Kidd has no ability to coach guys up, mix the lineups up. The offense is anemic and uninteresting to sit through.

2-5 is .286

I?m not sure Kyrie is going to fix any of these issues. If anything he?ll make defense worse.

I guess we?re just going to try to outscore teams

Doesn?t matter though. We?re 1.5 games out of 11th. And a tough month ahead of us. Gotta imagine that being out of even the play-in will light the fire under Miriam Adelson

You can blame the FO for that in my opinion.

Lively is the 2nd most important player on this team now and there is a ton of pressure on this 19yo kid.
It would help if we had a serious backup with similar size and skillsets.

Yes, Powell had an outstanding game tonight, but nobody thinks he is a serious backup who can anchor the 2nd unit defense on a nightly basis.

If we had a serious backup, Lively could play more loose and aggressive.
He has looked very timid these past 2 games like he is afraid to foul.

Get a goddamn serious backup center so Lively can go all out every night.

Agree.
And if they refuse to go after a big wing, they might as well play Prosper because we aren't going very far with Williams getting the minutes.

I just don't understand why he hasn't gotten any meaningful time after that 20 point performance a few weeks ago.

I predicted that Kyrie would play 50 games this season. That may have been an ambitious prediction. Reminds me of that quote from the old sports movie 'The Program', "Are you hurt or are you injured?"

Wasn't really excited about this pickup because he was more of a bench player being asked to come here and start.

The problem is both DJJ and Exum are actually better fits for this team and offer more production than Williams.

I still believe Jerami Grant is the best type of addition this team could add.

Lively
Grant
DJJ
Luka
Kyrie

That lineup puts you in the top 4 out west.

It gives you solid defensive flexibility in your starting lineup with 5 legit closers.

But the mavs will most likely fuck around and try to add some guy in the jj Reddick, Davis Bertrans or Justin Holiday talent group and tell us they love our boys in blue when healthy

Portland isn?t giving up Grant 6 months into his new contract. Maybe in his 3rd year of the 5 year contract.

I don't get the Jerami Grant proposal at all. Sure, it's smart to look at guys that don't fit their team (Grant is 29 and the rest of the Blazers squad is early 20s), but he doesn't fit here.

1) Max money for 22pts, 4reb is insane. He has a terrible money-to-contribution ratio
2) His rebounding is subpar. At 6'7" and 29yo, he kind of is what he is, but his defensive rebounding is only better than Green, Curry, and Jones.
3) His defensive rating is okay. He's a lot like GWill in that he's below average height/length but a decent decision-maker.

Anyone interested in John Collins? He is a good rebounder and three point shooter and would fit well at the 4 here. He seems to be somewhat of a christian wood type of head case, but I'm more realistic in who we can acquire at this point. He is definitely buy low right now.

But for me, I'm going for a package of Bey and Capela from the Hawks. I want to get a 4 and a backup 5 to put us back into contention.

Collins is solid. I do wonder if Jazz want to keep him.I think they'd trade Markannen before Collins, but honestly either would be solid.

We're just squandering our biggest advantage with Luka. He makes us an elite offensive team. He gives us so much flexibility because he's a 6'8" PG. Then we surround him with a 6'2" guy and three 6'6" guys. I get switchability, but we have none of the length and size to clog up the middle and deter offenses from the middle.

FO seems to have an aversion to 4s and 5s. I can't remember the last time we had a legit 4. I know that position has been largely washed, but I'd just like to have SOMEONE that isn't a SF being forced to play PF.

Markannen would be sweet. Stewart would be solid. Collins, meh.

I agree with Dal41 that we are probably looking at guards (JJ Reddick) or some cheap throw away morris type dude (Bertans esque) that will never have a role or play mins.

We will push the trade deadline where we have tons of competition and hear some company line bs for why we didnt add what everyone knows we need.

Wonder if Nico?s job is impacted by the sale of the team.

I know we don?t have the assets but Siakam would be nice to dream of.
